Besides the dress, I think one of the most important wedding decisions is the wedding cake. Everyone wants to see it. Everyone wants to taste it. Everyone wants to watch the bride and groom smoosh it into each other’s faces.
When my daughter asked me to make her wedding cake, I told her yes, but with conditions. (Not like I was busy with every other detail of the big day….) First condition was that it all had to be one flavor of cake and frosting, white. I didn’t have time for 4 different cakes with 4 different frostings!!! The second condition was that we had to come up with a way to decorate it that was quick and simple.
So how much cake did I end up making? The cake was 4 double layered cakes: 15 inch on bottom, then 12 inch, then 9 inch and finally a 6 inch on top for the bride and groom. For 150 people, there was plenty of cake and we brought home about half of the bottom 15 inch layer.
So where did I get all my cake making and decorating supplies? Amazon. The cake pans, the cardboard discs under each layer, the rhinestone banding, the snowflake brooch and the clear decorating sugar crystals all came from Amazon. I live in the middle of nowhere, so Amazon was my cake supply store!
